    Default Short Sleep May Harm Bone Health In Older Women

    Can insufficient sleep be harmful to bone health? New research in postmenopausal women has found that those who slept for no longer than 5 hours per night were most likely to have lower bone mineral density (BMD) and osteoporosis.
    A team from the University at Buffalo, NY, led the study of 11,084 postmenopausal women, all of whom were participants in the Women's Health Initiative.
    A recent paper in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research gives a full account of the findings.

    I don't find this surprising. In my careless youth I could go for long periods with insufficient sleep. In retirement, the opposite is true; I seem to need at least seven hours of restorative sleep each night, and when something interferes and prevents that, my body will shut down by early afternoon and force me to nap.

    I'm developing a greater appreciation for the benefits of restorative sleep. I recently watched of a video of a watery liquid, called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), washing through the brain of a sleeping person. Apparently, during sleep this CSF fluid helps to wash toxins and memory-impairing proteins from our brain....all while we sleep. Who knew??

    Good point... Especially mothers of young children with a newborn to care for every night!
